Bequia is the northernmost and largest of the Grenadines, just seven square miles of quiet lagoons, reefs, and long silvery stretches of beach. Among the first things you will notice are the colorful model boats set up on stands around the tiny harbor, representing the island's maritime history. This Land Adventure begins with a scenic drive through parts of Port Elizabeth, the island's quaint little town with its vegetable market and souvenir stalls, and up to Mt. Pleasant which offers a marvellous view of your yacht, the wider Caribbean Sea and the surrounding Grenadine islands. For this stop your camera is a must- have as the view will leave you breathless. The adventure then continues up the Atlantic Coast with its alternating ocean views and beautiful roadside floral scenery as you make your way to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary. Mr. Orton G. King, owner of this sanctuary has spent most of his time tending to his precious and endangered Hawksbill turtles. Listen to him spin tales of these ancient inhabitants of the deep. The difference between a tortoise and a turtle? Ask this and any other information you desire. You may even find out how to join the conservation effort. Make a brief stop at the Whaleboner bar and screen-printing shop where you may be lucky to see the artists at work. Try your hand at the technique and watch beautiful patterns emerge on the fabric. You may browse the boutique and purchase your very own piece of this island specialty. Return to Port Elizabeth where brightly coloured items wave gaily in the wind. You may choose to walk around and explore this area as it is within 100 feet of your ferry tender and departure point.
